Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Under Texas law, any sale of property that is encumbered by a lease must be sold with the lease. This means that the new owner takes the property with the lease and the lease is enforceable through to the end of the term. The new owner does not have to renew the lease, but they have to honor the agreement that is in place when they buy the land.

If the seller did not disclose the lease, then your action would be a suit against the seller for breach of lease in addition to suing the new owner to continue to enforce the lease.
